    Doc, how many days did it take to go from St. Louis to Red Wing?
    Do your charts agree with Rambus’ prediction of $25 oil?
    Elvis, Aretha, and Babe Ruth all died on Aug. 16th, so beware!

    BB, about 6 days to get from St. Louis to Red Wing. When did Rambus say we would see $25 oil? My long term charts tell me there is no evidence of that right now. Maybe in 2 years if he is lucky on his predictions. Besides, do you think Trump and Opec would let it happen? Can you imagine what it would do to Saudi Arabia and their budget needs. They already need to have $80 oil to balance their budgets and the the fracking oil compnies, the banks, and private equity guys would be toast and it would probably set off the next financial crisis with all the bad loans out there. By the way, did you see my note on SLB and HAL?

    Rambus said that in the last week. He did not say how long it would take, but he must be expecting a bad recession or depression. In the Great Depression crude fell to 10 cents a bbl. Rambus likes gold now ever since it broke above 1350 and he had been negative for years. I did see your note on SLB and HAL. Did you see my response?

      Thanks, I went back and read it. At this time, I don’t think we see $25 oil although it could happen in 200 years. Who knows but the technicals aren’t suggesting it all at this time.

        I check in on IMBBY every once in awhile.

          I last bought IMBBY@23.5 In 1932 when gold was 20.67 per oz that was 206 times the price of crude at 10 cents a bbl. In another depression gold would be 200 times the price of oil with oil at $25 and gold at 5K. It could happen.

    In a trade war between China and the US, perhaps we ought not to view it in the belief it is an up-and-coming world power challenging a waning would power, but as a buyer (U.S.) challenging a seller (China)
    The two are quite different.

    In the latter, the maxim is: “The buyer is always right”
    meaning: The buyer is the one with the power to define the trade terms.

    I think Trump is under-lining this belief by using tariffs.
